Voted "One of the 10 most romantic inns in the U.S." - USA Today and Sunset Magazine. Hacienda del Sol offers Taos charm at its best: individually themed rooms furnished in décor unique to the Southwest region. Hearty home-cooked breakfasts and afternoon sweets are served daily. Set on 1.2 acres with courtyards surrounded by lilacs, towering cottonwoods, elms, willows and blue spruce marvel at the magnificent views of the spiritual Taos Mountain. The traditional adobes date back to 1804 and are a part of Taos' artistic history. It was owned by legendary art patroness, Mabel Dodge Luhan, and housed such notables as D.H. Lawrence, Georgia O'Keeffe and Willa Cather.
The Cowboy Room has a king bed, sitting area and a kiva fireplace. The bath has a steam shower. There is a fridge, cd player, special robes with Hacienda logo, amazing views of Taos Pueblo land adjacent to the Hacienda and the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains. The decor is totally southwest with antique remembrances of real cowboys.
The Escondido Room is adjacent to the beautiful garden area accessed by french doors. From the garden, one has the Taos Pueblo land and Taos Mountain for a gorgeous view. The bed is queen sized. There is a kiva fireplace with gas logs for an easy romantic atmosphere. A frig, cd player with a selection of cd's and robes with Hacienda logo make this a very desirable room. The bath is decorated with brightly colored mexican tiles with tub/shower. This is probably one of quietest, most serene rooms.
The Los Amantes Room was built in the 1920's as a writing room for Mabel Dodge Luhan. The bedroom has a king size bed with a handmade quilt, an old roll top desk and two over sized comfortable chairs for gazing at the wood-burning kiva fireplace. Large windows looking out on Taos Mountain and the gardens make for a special stay. The brand new double Jacuzzi tub has its own room with a rattan daybed, skylight and adjoining bath with a stone-tiled rainforest steam-room shower and glass waterfall sink. A charming, historic room for special occasions and getaways.

My husband and I spent our anniversary in the Adobe and the Los Amantes. Air did not circulate well in the Adobe and we were very warm at night. We kept the windows open and used a floor fan; a ceiling fan would have been nice. I thought the Adobe had a private patio, but the fence is only a couple feet high in the front, which made me a bit uncomfortable leaving the shades open enough to circulate the air. The Los Amantes is larger and comfortable without a fan. Both rooms had clean bedding and the mattresses are firm, but not hard; comfortable. The Los Amantes does not have the large black Jacuzzi pictured on the web site. It has a smaller double white Jacuzzi up against the wall, which allowed for a nice double chair in the corner; perfect for cuddling! Candles are in the room. The area between the Jacuzzi and the sink and toilet doesn't have a door, but they do have a privacy screen that can be moved over. There are no T.V.'s in the rooms, but there is a CD player and they provide a few CDs. There is an outside hot tub with a sign-up sheet for private use. It was no problem to reserve a time slot and very enjoyable. Service was OUTSTANDING! Erika and Mark are spectacular! They were friendly, interesting and informative, but not pushy or invasive. Mark's breakfast is definitely worth waking up for!

Hacienda Del Sol is a wonderful place to relax and rest. We stayed here for our anniversary and loved it. We were treated like family and will return as soon as the opportunity arises. Gerd and Luellen were the perfect hosts and we will recommend Hacienda Del Sol to all of our traveling friends and family. Don't miss this magical place when visiting Taos!

This Bed and Breakfast could not have been more perfect. It was relaxation personified. The breakfasts were outstanding with three options each day. The location was quiet and peaceful and our hosts/hostesses were delightful and made ach guest feel as if they were the most important. The location was convenient to everything we wereinterested in doing, and the staff was most helpful to assist with out "tourist needs". Joe S., Phoenix, AZ
